    Tim McInnerny, Lord Percy Percy of Blackadder and Simon Gould in 10 Percent, finishes off the series with a discussion about William Shakespeare's Richard II. He explains to Lucy why it's more important to understand the rhythm of Shakespeare's verse than understanding the meaning of all the words; he talks to Lucy about the experience of being part of a cult comedy such as Blackadder and why playing Hamlet is more about the actor than it is about the part.
    Hosted by Lucy Eaton, theatre producer and West End & screen actress best known for her role as Lucy in hit comedy ‘Staged’. Other episodes include Toby Stephens, Richard Eyre, Sanjeev Bhaskar and Joanna Vanderham.

Great fun

This is a gem of a show: lively and thought-provoking interviews with theatre people about theatrical art and performance. Also, lots of unexpected laughter. Loved the Toby Stephens’ episode on how stage fights can go wrong if you’re already covered in fake blood but actually do get injured!
